debt, not vets. with $17 trillion in debt and massive annual deficits, our country faces a fiscal crisis of unparalleled scope. now is not the time in any federal department to spend money we don't have. to be sure, there's much to like in the sashed sanders bill and e components were presented as separate, smaller as part of a carefully considered long-term strategy to reform the v.a., hold leadership accountable and improve service to veterans, we'd have no problem expending enthusiastic support. as with many bloated legislative projects in today's washington, the overreaching and overpromising in this bill will only lead to disappointment and recriminations as the high cost and unanticipated consequences are revealed. that will be followed by demands for an entirely new round of comprehensive reforms and the cycle will begin anew. congress should go back to the drawing board, assume a more modest approach and take up these proposals on an individual basis. that's the better path to achieving enduring and effective reform and accountability for the services we provide to our vet

debt and deficit problems. if we are going to close a loophole, the american people should get the benefit of a lower rate instead of just handing them money over to washington so he can spend more. we close a lot of loopholes, we got a lot of the junk out of the code. our plan reveals 228 sections of the tax code. we cut the size of the income tax code by roughly 25%. tax reform needs to be about strengthening the economy, making the codes blur and fairer. today we had the opportunity to make the first step forward. this is the kind of tax code the american people need and deserve. before he opened us up to questions, i want to draw your attention to a list of the major provisions in the press release. when you are talking about the entire tax code, there is a lot to go over. i want to highlight a few items on the list in addition to lowering rates, this includes simpler improved taxation of investment income. we tax long-term capital gains and dividends as normal income but exempt 40% of such income six tax, resulting in a percentage point decrease from the maximum rate indiv
deficit issues. the need for sustainable fiscal path through the country to focus to the maximum extent possible on fiscal changes that would address the longer run issues that will be associated ratio rising debt to gdp over decades and to try to avoid doing harm to the recovery. i would take the same general position. a in the short run, there is value of additional physical stimulation in the economy that will complement what you are already doing and make it easier to withdraw the quantitative easing. is that a fair comment? >> i do think the economy is beginning to recover and we have made progress. minimum i would hope that fiscal policy would do no harm. >> one quick question. you and your predecessors have looked at the unemployment rate of 6.5% as a point of inflection if you will. one of the aspects of the labort situation is that participation is falling. that 6.5% might not actually capture the reality of the current economy. to be an adequate measure of undertakeeds to do to monetary easing. are you looking at other ways or looking beyond this unemployment rate to gauge you
about it first watching the television. there is a trust deficit here. when kerry asked if he trusted putin, he said, wolf, there is some value in putin and that's why you keep hearing from u.s. officials they are going to keep watching what russia does this weekend. we know they are watching closely from the air, from the ground to see if the troop movements amount to anything where they go into the country. >> reminds me sort of the worlds of ronald reagan's in the '80s, trust but verify. >> that's right. john kerry says verify, verify, and then verify. >> the situation is tense. jim sciutto, thank you very much. more on the rising tensions in the u.s. but just ahead, former chris christie aides contain new information about the bridscand and they are sparking new outrage. in fact, they depend on a unique set of nutrients.

the deficit, is true as well. c.b.o. tells us that from the ten-year period covering the enactment of the law to a decade later, we're going to save about $1.2 trillion beyond what we additionally estimated. current trajectories we are going to be $250 billion under c.b.o.'s initial estimate for federal health care expenditures on an annual basis. that's big savings to the taxpayers, and when you combine that with the millions of americans who have coverage, you can see how the affordable care act is working. now, there is still work to do, and there are going to be debates on the floor of the senate about ways in which we could change and fix the affordable care act. we're reordering 1/6 of the american economy. there is no doubt going to be bumps along the road and no doubt going to be places where we can find bipartisan agreement on how we can fix the act, make it work even better. but the answer from our republican colleagues has been pretty simple so far. it has been to simply repeal the law. they say they want to repeal and replace it, but we have yet to see any evidence of that replace
would happen with the $17 trillion deficit? stuart: we have asked you this before. what are we going to do? you told us you are out there, we want to bring people together. not looking for a radical opposite to what is going on. you want to bring people together to find solutions and i know you have been out there looking. do you think it is possible to establish a consensus? is it possible to bring people together over a course of action that will take us in a different direction in the future? >> it is very possible. we need to start talking. never have a conversation with your adversary because that humanizes them and your job is to demonize the. we see a lot of that going on. that is not what we want. in the pre revolutionary days of america people need to get together with their friends and family and talk about what kind of america do you want to have? talk about who your representatives are and how did they vote. not how they said they voted but how did they vote. you need to know that because you need to talk to your 87-year-old and who hasn't voted in 20 years who may be an
that there are substantial long-term budget deficit issues and a need for a sustainable physical path for the country to focus to the maximum extent possible on fiscal changes that would address the longer run issues that will be associated with rising debt-to-gdp ratio over decades and to try to avoid doing harm to the recovery, and i would take the same general position. >> but in the short run there is a value of additional fiscal stimulation in the economy that will complement what you're already doing and make it easier for you to withdraw the quantitative easing. is that a fair comment? >> i think the economy is beginning to recover and we have made progress. and, you know, at a minimum, i would hope that fiscal policy would do no harm. >> just one other quick question you have looked at an unemployment rate of 6.5% as a point of inflection if you will. but one of the aspects of the current employment situation is that labor force participation is falling that 6.5% might not capture the reality of the current economy and be an adequate sort of measure when you should begin or how you should beg
, imbalances you have because of the current account deficits, you need to keep monitoring fiscal policy quite tight. you have to be a lot deeper into the upcoming fiscal year before you see contraction growth and that has to come on the back of implementation of projects, some of the economic reform issues that have been announced since may 2012. >> so i guess may is the key if we're looking for measures like this to be introduced. do you think that's going to be a turning point for the country? >> well, i think there's a few questions about will the government get enough of the mandate and therefore be able to, on the back of that, implement policies, but that remain toes be seen. so it might not be easy for some of the incumbent parties to necessarily muster the vote they need to have. but it's true, post elections, you know, in principal we should be more a possibility to get more on the petition side of these policies, let preoccupation with elections nearing, if you will. the kick start of the investment cycle, all of that cannot be turned on overnight. it takes a while before these type

loopholes as a part of a compromise approach dealing with our media and the long-term deficit challenge is. so yes the president will talk about why it's so important for democrats to advance an agenda that is focused on expanding opportunities for all. and as he has and i have as well it is certainly worth noting in the contrast, and he will again tonight with an agenda that is focused on protecting the loopholes and prerogatives of the wealthiest and the well-connected and again from expanding or protecting the opportunity for a few. >> it sounds like a campaign. when you say opportunit see oppa few yesterday you were saying the chairman proposal has had some good potential to it. >> and they rallied around it. >> the president met earlier this weekend talked about immigration reform. >> obviously the president, like all republican leaders including those running for office themselves, is engaging in political events and he will be supportive in many ways a democrat either running for the reelection or office in this cycle. in the meantime that he is principally focused on advancing an a

deficit and our tax keep getting raised higher and higher, and heir economy is tanking tankingd jerry brown exacerbate everred the problem by giving illegals more access to scholarships, getting driver's licenses without being legal aren'ts and i want to ask how a true reagan conservative. >> reagan had been california governor, too. i quote this in the book and should have put this in the talk. the reagan -- reagan granted amnesty to a huge number of illegal immigrants in the 1980s. it was 1986. and reagan used the argument that immigrants provide a valuable source of labor, nat many jobs that many americans will take, the classic argument you hear today. so reagan granted am necessary city, but at the same time he did it in exchange for what he was promised would be tighter border security that would allow people to enter the country legally. and so really i think what reagan did was right, but what happened this followup to what reagan did never took place. so, that border security was not provided. best piece is a piece by petitioner robinson, and he wrote the pay tear down the wa

small needles to thread for the trusted deficits. president obama has demonstrated and wants to be a partner for peace. he is committed to trying to end the conflict and all of his claims. how he can do that? let's be candid. some of you doubt it. as it israelis security officials will a test, -- attest, abbas has been against the violence. i have also spent many hours with president abbas. i believe he clearly understands both the tremendous benefit of peace and the great costs of failure. he understands that in terms of his own people, his own grandchildren, the country he hopes to be able to lead, and in terms of the history that be leakers -- beleaguers all. he know the people what never have the self-determination without ending the conflict in a solution that delivers two states for two peoples. and so this prime minister netanyahu when he looks me in the eye and said i cannot accept a deal with the palestinians that does not make the people of israel safer. we agree 100%.

a pressure has faded to launch bold, new attacks on federal deficits. the president's fiscal blueprint expected to include proposals to upgrade aging highways and railroads, finance more prekindergarten programs and enhanced job training. the white house said it would also enlarge the current income tax credit to cover 13.5 million low aren't workers without children, expand the childcare tax credit for some parents, and make it easier for workers to contribute to individual retirement accounts. >> president obama will talk about his budget proposal to an elementary school here in washington, d.c. we'll bring you his remarks live at 11:30 eastern on our companion network c-span and we invite you to weigh in on your thoughts on the president's proposal at facebook and twitter using #cspanchat. later the white house budget office will hold a briefing with budget director sylvia mathews burwell and policy advisers. live at 12:45 p.m. eastern also on c-span. here on c-span2 we will go live to the heritage foundation for discussion of the future of ukraine. this the second of state has arri
to this aid. difficult steps need to be undertaken to right size gas prices and trim budget deficits, but ukraine should be given a long enough lease so that these necessary reforms don't strangle a nation today dealing with threats to its very existence. second cry me i can't. -- crimea. they have invaded and the very accord they signed guaranteeing crimea's territory. no doubt president putin was sore and no doubt he didn't like the fact that the united states voiced its strong support for the right of a sovereign ukraine to make independent decisions about its future partnerships and no doubt he is infuriated that the ukrainian people are now on their way to getting their way. but this is not a schoolyard. you don't get to push around weaker kids just because you don't like them. this is the 21st century. the reason we belong to organizations like the united nations or the reason we negotiate treaties like the budapest memorandum is because we now understand, after centuries of european war, how destabilizing this kind of behavior is. the irony for russia, of course, is that this

so we expect the lira, the current deficit is an issue in turkey and we expect the currency to remain weak so we have to consider that when making investment proposals, we have to assume a little bit of, not a currency strengthening anyway, probably weakening if anything and brazil is a problem for currency from that point of view and equally as a sterling uk investor we find the dollar quite cheap so we find u.s. assets quite interesting at the moment. what goes around comes around i guess. >> reporter: thank you very much for joining us. julia, that is from here. we'll be back in an hour with another interview. for now pack over to you. >> thank you, great to chat to you. >>> the bitcoin exchange mt. gox received a subpoena from prosecutors in new york, asked the company to preserve certain documents. ceo mark capellas issued a statement saying the business is at a turning point. japanese authorities are looking into the matter but don't have jurisdiction after the mt. gox website went down. >>> still to come, the british economy returns to focus as investors await the second meetin

at home than we buy from the rest of the world. we have cut our deficits by more than half since i took office. and for the first time in over a decade business leaders around the world have declared that china's no longer the world's number one place to invest. america is. we have made great progress, but we must do more to rebuild our economy and new foundation for growth and prosperity. i believe that what unites the people of this nation, regardless of race or region or party, young or old, rich or poor, is the simple profound belief in opportunity for all. the notion that if you work hard and take responsibility you can get ahead. that belief has suffered some serious blows. over more than three decades, even before the great recession hit, massive shifts in technology and global competition have eliminated good middle-class jobs and weakened the economic foundations that families depend on. today after four years of economic growth, corporate profits and stock prices have rarely been higher and those at the top have never done better. but average wages have barely budget. inequali
discrimination by insurance companies, that will reduce the deficit, they need to bring it up for a vote, but they do not have solutions. what they want to do is deny health insurance coverage to millions of americans. that's a shame. and i think we are wasting our time today voting again to turn our backs on the bill that will offer so much to the american people. don't we have anything else to do? all we seem to do is deny science, which is the bill that will be coming up next, the republicans want to stop e.p.a. from dealing with the climate change issue, or denying the rights of people to get health insurance. which the republicans have voted over and over again to do. i urge we vote no on this bill and yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from michigan reserves. the gentlewoman from kansas is recognized. ms. jenkins: madam speaker, i'd like to yield two minutes to the gentleman from texas, chairman kevin brady, our chair of the ways and means health subcommittee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized. mr. brady: madam sp
't have enough import to fund our consumption or enough saving to support our deficit. what are we going to do if china changes and we don't. >> but i gather that you think they're on the ascendency and we are clearly on the decline. that is the -- i will say, that was my takeaway. >> they are rebalancing their model to keep the growth and development story going and that will certainly take them to a larger scale of their economy than ours, at some point in the next five to ten years. >> gdp. >> their per capta gdp, joe, is going to be increasing, but at a much slower pace. for a long time. >> multiplied out and that's why it's bigger. >> for a long time. are we on the decline? that's the big debate in america. we continue to undersave, underinvest in people, infrastructure, and capacity. and if we don't get that together, then their ascendency will coincide with our decline. >> we've had periods like this before. >> yeah. >> i mean, you're optimistic we get it together or do you think we're the roman empire? >> no, look, i hope we get it together. what i don't see is a debate on the st
to have it happen during -- when things were terrible five years ago. but we can have a deficit which creates more debt but not at a rate that this grows faster than gdp grows. if gdp is going to grow at 2% in real terms, but the fed has a policy that they're shooting for 2% inflation on top of that, that would mean 4% in terms of nominal gdp and you literally could have debt grow at 4% and it would maintain the same relationship to no, ma'amal gdp as it does now. the trend is wrong. there is a danger of that goes wrong. i don't like seeing it go up as a percentage of gdp. this country is in wonderful shape. >> if you say government pensions aren't the problem because the government has the power to tax, what do you say to somebody who has a private pension? should they be worried about it? should they think they are still going to get it when they retire. >> it's protected by the pension benefit guarantee corps. that has come into play in many pension plans. the state municipal pension plans, the one right here in omaha, is in terrible shape. and almost out of resources. it's a healt
that the deficit is going down. who wouldn't hope for that? we hope for it. it's working. but any time you look at what they're doing, it's all short term. the stuff that's going to eat our lunch is 10,000 people a day turning 65. you've got a system that was set up of social security that you won't even address the insolvency of it for 75 years. health care is on automatic pilot. forget what you call it. it's time to deal with the long-term stuff before interest goes from where it is now to back to historical heights and then watch people grab their socks and run for blocks. >> is there anything you think can be done considering that it probably won't be implemented until after the november 2014 midterms? >> anything that will be done will be done down the road. that's what's wrong with the health care plan. whatever it is is all the correction process is down the road, way ahead. and it's like a dock fix. you're going to do another dock fix and they will run in. you're going to do anything. whatever you do, whether it's tort reform or real estate or whatever is done, the groups will organize
talk about deficits and debt. we could talk about data. but in the end, treasuries really when it gets nasty, when that tina the only -- that there is no alternative to stocks, that changes rather abruptly when stocks go down. and then tina becomes there is no alternative to being long treasuries. we want to keep cognizant of that. to the end the japanese are doing everything in their power to keep the yen weak, let's look at how all that stimulus and various ways they're trying to goose their economy have panned out. one way they've made good strides on. currently the latest reads is 3.7. now, that is the basic lowest rates since july of '07. during that interim period between '07 and now the high was 5.5. the message to this is is that the japanese may have issues for the last 25 years. but huge high unemployment certainly does not seem to be one of them but they made some inroads. base wage, recent data. this is important. base wages were only up 1/10 year over year. one of the things they're trying to do is goose inflation. if you adjust the wages for inflatio
if you passed obamacare, you were going to save money and was going to help the deficit. i don't even know where they came up with those numbers. then the president had 29 different waivers since that time. so changes in the law. now we know how horrendous the rollout was. now we hear 4 million. the president said it at least five times in the cut we saw. 4 million people have signed up. how many have gone through fulfillment and registered for the program? that's another question. now they expect us to believe that kathleen sebelius never said 7 million. good thing eric has a vcr. >> i think success looks like at least 7 million people having signed up by the end of march 2014. >> yes, that was from my vcr. >> thank you. >> but that's the crazy part. they keep saying things. you know, you're going to save $2500 per family. turns out it's going to cost you $2500 more. you can keep your doctor. you can't keep your doctor. they keep saying things and then months later saying, oh, we never said that. good thing we have those vcrs and tapes and our little editors back there pulling the so
to address the debt and deficit. his vice president told democrats at their retreat that they have no interest and won't push for trade promotional authority. and the president has said his focus will be going around congress instead of working with it. so we have two options. we can follow the president's lead and pack it in for the year, just wait for the election, or we can pursue our own vision and continue to present alternatives to the mess that the president has brought us over the last five years. and that's exactly what we will do. we'll lead and our members will not shy away from advancing better solutions for the american people. it's why our ways and means chairman has commenced a discussion about how to reform our broken tax system. that's why our leaders have outlined a vision for how we would tackle immigration reform. that's why chairman ryan will write a balanced budget that helps save our entitlement programs. and it's why our members will offer an alternative when it comes to obamacare. we'll offer better solutions on jobs, job training, education, and a host of
about each other. that is what we have to get through here. thread forneedles to the trusted deficits. president obama has demonstrated an want to be a partner for peace. he is committed to trying to end the conflict and all of his claims. that? can do let's be candid. some of you doubt it. as it israelis security officials will a test, -- abbas has been against the violence. many hours spent with president abbas. i believe he clearly understands both the tremendous benefit of peace and the great costs of failure. he understands that in terms of his own people, his own grandchildren, the country he hopes to be able to lead, and in terms of the history that be leakers -- beleaguers all. he know the people what never have the self-determination without ending the conflict in a solution that delivers two states for two peoples. and so this prime minister when he looks me in the eye and said i cannot accept a deal with the palestinians that does not make the people of israel safer. we agree 100%. [applause] but i argue, there is a distinction between a unilateral withdrawal from lebanon w
